New Delhi: India today stated that they have given Pakistan sufficient “actionable evidence” of the involvement of the Pakistani Army in the killing and mutilation of two Indian soldiers.

Further India sought action from Islamabad on the incident that again flared bilateral diplomatic tensions.



Indian Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar today summoned Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit and conveyed India’s outrage over the “barbaric act” and told him that the Pakistani army was involved in the May 1 incident in Jammu and Kashmir near the Line of Control.



As part of the “actionable evidence” that Pakistan has demanded, after India accused it of being behind the killing and mutilation of the two Indian soldiers, Jaishankar said that the attack on the Indian soldiers was “preceded by covering fire from Pakistani posts in Battal sector (in vicinity of village Battal)”.
